Back to the Office

Let your colleagues return to the office safely with our ‘Covid-19 proof’ solutions

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on all of us. We are advised to work from home as much as possible. But that is not always possible for everyone. Worldwide everyone is looking for good solutions to gradually resume public and working life as well as possible. And a return to the office is also part of that. Each country does this at its own pace and with its own rules. But a few things are certain. Together we must ensure a safe and hygienic situation and we must take the ‘social distancing rules’ into account. This also affects ‘working in the office’. So, how do we manage the number of people in the office? In the building itself, but also in the meeting rooms, the reception area and the workplace. How do we ensure that employees keep sufficient space from each other? How do we provide a safe and hygienic working place? But, most important, how do we ensure that this is all properly arranged before your colleagues literally enter the building? GoBright offers you smart software solutions that guarantee a safe and healthy working environment, supporting a smooth Return-to-the-Office policy. With our solutions for desk booking, room booking and visitor registration you and your colleagues can book a workplace in advance, from your home. And visitors can also pre-register themselves from home.

GoBright Desk Booking Solutions (social distance and hygienic proof)

To ensure availability and to manage the number of people at the office Desk Booking is the solution. Your colleagues can use the GoBright app, to book a workplace in advance. They check the status of a desk with our unique Desk Connect and Glow: Available (green), Almost occupied (orange), Occupied (red), Non bookable (off).

How does “Needs Cleaning” work?

  1. Check the availability of a desk, from your home, and book the right desk in advance.
  2. When you finished working and you leave the desk, the Connect and Glow turn purple.
  3. Purple means the desk needs to be cleaned by a cleaner.
  4. After cleaning, the cleaner swipes the desk ‘clean’ with his/her NFC/RFID card.
  5. The Connect and Glow return to their normal modus; the Available status green.
  6. Now, the desk is ready to use and bookable again.

GoBright Room Booking Solutions (social distance and hygienic proof)

Book a Room

Because of the social distancing measures, you will probably have to reduce the capacity of your meeting rooms. For example, a room for ten people is now only suitable for six persons. You can enter this new capacity in the GoBright Portal. When someone is searching a meeting room, only available rooms based on the new capacity will be shown. The new capacity will also be displayed on the Room Display, in Outlook and Office 365. This guarantees that your employees always book a safe and social distancing proof room.



GoBright Control prevents touching remote controls and the presentation display. Users only need to touch the small control display. This saves cleaning. Combined with a sensor, no physical actions are needed at all. A few minutes before the start of the meeting, the lights and presentation display turn on automatically.

Room Detection

When using the room sensor, users also do not have to check in on the room display by hand. This happens automatically when someone walks into the room.

Catering & Services

With GoBright’s Catering & Services feature – part of the Room Booking System, it is possible to order catering or extra services, such as a second presentation screen or wireless audio set, before and during the meeting. Without having to touch a computer or screen, other than your own mobile phone. And these extras will be delivered directly to the meeting room.

GoBright Visitor Registration Solutions (social distance and hygienic proof)

Our pre-registration feature provides options for contactless registration at the reception. Your visitor receives by email a QR code and e.g. safety instructions with his/her appointment confirmation. Scanning this QR code on the registration display reduces touch significantly. Receptionist can also sign in pre-registered visitors from the GoBright portal for a contactless sign in experience. The safety instructions can be shown again on the display. You can also place multiple displays at busy receptions. This ensures social distancing and reduces waiting times. The visit management solutions can also be used to give access to the company restaurant (in time slots), both for employees and visitors. The QR code gives you access to the restaurant.
